What Now, Walrus?

His morning routine does nothing to quell his nerves—today he’s going on his first walrus hunt. It’s 1980, late July—the month walrus hunters climb into motorized freighter canoes and leave Igloolik, a small Inuit community in Nunavut, Canada.

I commend you and everyone involved, on both sides of the lens, for making and sharing this "Educational" film with the world. The film is listed under the film subjects; "Traditional way of life" and "Hunting" , but hopely the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) can update it to be listed under all the relevant film categories on this site.

Abraham Anghik Ruben - World Renowned Inuit Artist Biography. Powerful, compelling, exquisite are but a few of the words to describe the work of master sculptor Abraham Anghik Ruben.

The late 1890s would see the arrival of large-scale commercial whaling fleets into the region soon followed by an influx of Inuit from Alaska.
